Flashback Friday is back and being hosted by Emma over at A Matter of Choice. I love looking through other peoples old photos and sharing their memories. Their past is what has made them the people they are today and I just think its interesting hearing about peoples experiences in life so I'm really pleased this linky is up and running again.
So for my first week of linking up I'm taking you back to 1985. I was fifteen in this photo and on my way to our local youth club with my mates. It was a place we all went to every week, a popular place to hang out loads of teenagers would meet up there. There would be a disco every Friday night where we danced our socks off to tunes from Janet Jackson, Madonna, five Star, Band Aid, Wham, Paul Young, Culture Club and Duran Duran. Every time I hear Wham's Last Christmas it takes me back to this time and I see myself linked arms with the girls singing along to this Christmas classic.
I'm the one posing in the pale pink outfit (although it looks white in this photo.) At the time we wore big baggy shirts with massive diamante brooches at the neck. I wish it was a little clearer because this brooch I was wearing was multicoloured and I loved it. I was also wearing gigantic pink loop earrings and I know I would have been wearing tons of bangles up my arms because I never left home without them. I love that my mate next to me is blowing a big bubblegum bubble, we thought we were so cool.
